Dr. Bill Obrien’s Virtual Civics, Monday, January 18, 2021

What chaos comes from the lack of Civics. Lately we’ve had the horror of seeing in real time what happens when the proverbial bottom falls out and things come crashing down due to the firm foundation those things were set on collapsing. But were we ever truly firm? What’s happened in the years spanning from 1939 till now that we didn’t learn this lesson the first time around is mindboggling, that human life is precious, and the only way to liberty and happiness is that all peoples are free. If nothing else can be gained by the last four years of this presidency, it’s this, we will most definitely fall as a nation if we don’t stop this spiral into Machiavellianism and stabilize the people who’ve been caught up in this global game of RISK. The moral of the story? Don’t cut off your nose to spite your own face. We can thrive if we work together.
